    I just put some LEDs in my 1st gen. But I believe your best option is to retrofit. Or buy retrofitted lights. Don't put HIDs in a stock housing.

    OP, are you talking about actual headlight and not the bulb right? In my experience, aftermarket headlights usually are not as good as OEM as they tend to have leak and gets moisture on the inside.
